I love Jessica Lanyadoo.
I still have sessions recorded from years ago, and I still listen to them. Sometimes for insight, sometimes for laughs, and sometimes just to marvel at how right she was, and how far I’ve come (or haven’t).
I’ve been seeing her since 2004, and every time I leave her office I feel like I’ve had a long talk with a really good friend...until I remember that she knows things about me that no one else does, and says things that no friend would dare say.

I have been through some big, serious stuff in my life, especially of late, and having her to confer with, argue with, and ultimately listen to, has made all the difference. Career changes, love, partnerships, family...she’s always been on the money. Having her key phrases and jokes in my head is the added bonus.
She is the real deal, and she won’t indulge my desires for her to psychically read certain things or people if they’re not going to ultimately serve me. Now *that’s* an intuitive counselor— someone who knows what my work is, helps me find the path, and gives me ways to support myself.

I can’t wait to see her again!

Talking with Jessica is akin to talking with a dear friend. She is so supportive and gracious. I felt like I could speak openly about some difficult issues. Do not hesitate to book a consultation. You will be deeply rewarded and clearer in your journey ahead.
Thank you Jessica, you are a treasure

My friend bought me a session with Jessica as a gift, and, I’ll admit, when I opened the card I rolled my eyes and thought to myself, “Oh, hocus pocus, yippee, can’t wait.” I was a skeptic to say the least. There was a five month wait to get in to see this lady, and I forgot all about my appointment until I received her convenient reminder email. Little did I know how worth the wait that five months had been.

Not only was she a complete joy to spend an hour of my life in the presence of (she is truly a remarkable human), but the experience was definitely a life-changer. This person is most certainly psychic; she’s also a sav on the tarot and with astrology. She read things from my astrological chart that are accurate on my medical chart as well? Among other things, I was shocked when she told me that my astrological chart indicates that I need to beware of diabetes as my doctor has already warned me about blood sugar issues. Also, she asked me what had happened to my leg recently. I had injured it just one day prior while exercising, and she was able to point to the exact location of pain and describe what motion had caused the irritation. Her physical presence and accuracy are truly astonishing. She is a gifted individual.

Aside from the health stuff, Jessica also helped me take a clearer look at the direction my life is taking, the roles of my job, my passions, and my family. She was strangely able to spread the obvious out before me while sheering away those muddling points of confusion that I’ve been toting around for the past decade. In the weeks since my appointment, my life has retained an unprecedented clarity. I can’t wait for my next visit.

She excels not just with a precise assessment of you/your chart but her ability to communicate. I felt she really understood the true nature of my questions even if i had trouble getting that across. I had a reading with Jessica 4 years ago and she remains the model when I speak of my astrology experiences.

Her personality is warm and she creates a comfortable space to be open. She encouraged me to ask for clarity if I was unsure of anything. And she is very direct and honest. She never tip-toed around tough subjects but was gentle when the information was difficult to hear.

I actually wasn’t brave enough to heed her words at the time and I think she sensed this. She told me what to prepare for and how to take care of myself as a result but gently urged me to relax and really consider steps I was about to take. She never told me “don’t do this” or “make sure you do that” as those choices are always yours. I would come to discover the degree of her accuracy in the years to come and wish I had the personal strength to attend to her words then. Nothing like learning about yourself the hard way.

If you haven’t had a reading before or if you feel like you need a fresh perspective, I urge you to set aside the money for a reading.

A conversation with Jessica is the best gift I have given myself in a long time.

She is gifted, divine, fabulous, lovely and REAL. I feel truly grateful to have found her.

Wow, wow, wow... wow. I have seen Jessica once a couple years ago and once a couple days ago and both times she has been right on and brought me great peace, clarity, and energy to make changes in my life.
When I visited her for a session last week, she had suggested via email (I’m in Seattle and went on a quest to SF) that she does medium work as well as intuitive astrology; skeptical, I declined. When I arrived, I quickly filled her in on my visit (adopted at birth, I was seeing my biological half-sister for the first time, my biological aunt, and my mother’s husband; my mother died several years ago). She was sensitive, compassionate, and very funny.
After we discussed living family members and her impression “hits” (all right on), she told me that my dead mother came in with me. I already had a strong sense of her presence but was kinda floored by this. Jessica just started “interpreting” what she was saying.
I was skeptical at first but Jessica just threw out some mad crazy facts that even I didn’t know until the next day when I went to my mother’s home. Plus, while I couldn’t visually see my mother, the sense of exactly where her location in the room was so strong that I pointed to the area and Jessica concurred that this was the place she was.
Jessica’s intuitive astrology was right on as well, although after the medium experience I was just totally wiped and at peace.
She is an amazing, warm person and I highly, highly, highly recommend her. I used to periodically go to therapy but her sessions are valuable enough for me to skip all that. She is the real deal.

My daughter who lives in the Bay area had had a few sessions with Jessica. When she talked about that experience she had I knew that the next time I came to visit it was top on my list of things to do. The next time I was in town we booked back to back appointments.
I was not sure what to expect from my own session. However, I will say that it was exactly what I needed. We spent a great deal of time talking about the care of my elderly father. She was sensitive and insightful. I feel that it was one of the most helpful hours I have spent with anyone. This past summer the whole family was meeting in San Francisco. As soon as I found out I called to book appointments for the entire family. I really wanted my husband and other two children to experience time with a gifted couniclor. Everyone in my family had similar experience. It far exceeded their expectations. I wish I lived closer so I could take advantage of this talent.

I met with Jessica late last year when I was lost and just wallowing in a funk that would just not go away. As an entrepreneur, I always had ideas & projects and fearless in my endeavors, but for whatever reason, maybe it was my age or circumstance, whatever it was, I was lost and desperate to find my way. I felt uninspired, jaded, confused and scared to make a wrong move. Truth be told, I finally went to see Jessica when I was at my wits end. I heard about Jessica through a friend a long time ago and thought about going many times, but could not justify spend money on a ‘non-essential’ when I didn’t have a steady income. However, when I finally admitted that this was the reason for my not going, a close friend simply said, “But can you afford NOT to see her?”. I made an appointment the next day.

First of all, Jessica does more than astrology- she’s educated in many areas of counseling, and has an arsenal of tools at her disposal so whatever may be ailing you, she knows what will ease your pain. She has a warm, quirky personality and I felt comfortable immediately. I won’t bore you with the details of my reading, but she talked to me about a lot of different aspects of my life, which in retrospect was very smart because she knew that my funk was not from just one thing. When I left her office, I felt a little lighter- not because she said anything earth shattering, but because she gave me tools to work with and I was excited to try them out.

Over the next month, friends and family began to notice a positive change in me and I did, too, but the funny thing was, no aspect of my life had really changed. Armed with my new tools and the desire to find my way, the only thing that changed was my attitude and a slightly different way of processing things in my mind. It turns out the bulk of my funk was self-inflicted and with a few small adjustments and a nudge in the right direction, I got back on track. It was easy to stick to my new ‘diet’, because I wanted my progress to continue. Update: I have been working steadily all year, and for the first time in my life, I am really enjoying what I do and get immense satisfaction from the fruits of my labor. Jessica didn’t tell me what to do (to my immediate chagrin) instead, she eliminated some options and gave me a rule of thumb to consider before undertaking new projects. This simple mantra has helped me to make smart strong decisions and I finally figured out what I want to do for the rest of my life.

It will be almost a year now since I talked with Jessica and I have never been more happy, content and LOVING MY WORK! I think back to the fact that I originally couldn’t justify spending the money for a reading because deep down I considered it to be a gamble, but now I realize It was the best money I have ever spent and I advise others that are in the same predicament as I was, MAKE THE CALL. It’s only a gamble if you don’t listen and try. I thank Jessica every day for helping me gain control over my life and finding my happy again.

P.S. For those of you that are going to see Jessica, just to basically ‘test’ her on her abilities - Go play your, “Guess what I’m thinking” game with someone else! If you don’t believe, then you truly don’t want to be helped so don’t waste her time or yours.

Firstly, I would like to say that you may be disappointed if you think of Jessica as a psychic. She is an intuitive counselor. Sounds new agey, but the name doesn’t lie. As someone said earlier, speaking with Jessica is like having a frank conversation with the voice in the back of your head - a voice you try to ignore and perhaps don’t even know how to articulate yet, but it’s there. She brings your inner thoughts to the forefront and offers concrete advice on what you should do address them in your day-to-day life.

Now on to a review of my reading: The most shocking thing to me during my meeting was her ability to sum up two relationships I had in my life at the moment. She described these people to the T simply by hearing their names and helped me figure out what was going wrong in these relationship. She confirmed my inner most thoughts about these people, feelings I was trying endlessly to deny, and I in no way feed her any of this information.

She was also able to pick up on something I was thinking that very week over and over in my head. It wasn’t something I’d thought of or talked about before that week, so it was crazy that she picked up on it.

I’d love to say more, but I don’t want to reveal too much of my reading because they are confidential. All I can say is I was a much more centered person after I got off the phone. I had new options to think of that I hadn’t thought of before, and I had a plan to move forward with. I cannot wait to speak to her again and check in!

Jessica Lanyadoo is amazing. Absolutely amazing.
She has been an incredible support during some of the darkest times of my life; she always speaks to what I already know, but somehow can’t see my way out of...with a sense of humor she illuminates the path I’m on, bringing clarity to my choices and diffusing my fears.
I love, love, love her, and I’m super grateful for the gifts she offers to the world.

I joined yelp so I could write this review!

I’ve been to Jessica three times now and every time she has been great. Seriously. I walk away buoyant. She has a knack of explaining things in a way that make sense and in a way that makes you feel completely capable. Several of my friends have gone to her as well and we jokingly refer to it as “therapy express” because she totally gets to the heart of the matter. It’s truly uncanny.

I should also say that before going to her I didn’t believe in astrology. Now, I do. The first time I spoke to her, it was over the phone. She described my family and its dynamics perfectly. She explained how my upbringing and the personalities in my family were influencing my current romantic relationship. I had been so miserable in that relationship for a long time and had spent soooo much time turning the problem over in my mind every which way. It only took Jessica twenty minutes to break it down into pieces that I could understand — not just on the intellectual level but on the heart level as well. Another time, we talked about the direction my career should take and she nailed it. And this last time, I had barely settled into my seat (and certainly hadn’t told her anything other than hello!) and she correctly told me why I was there and described the circumstances that had brought me there in the adjectives that I was planning on using. When she describes the people in my life, she always describes them perfectly! It’s crazy! And she always gives good advice - practical tips to help you change for the better.

She is specific and direct. And she doesn’t mince words. She’s also hilarious... which makes the experience a lot of fun. Jessica is great at what she does. I know there are a couple of bad reviews on here but this has not been my experience at all (nor my friends). I’m a broke ass student or I’d go much more often because each time, she gives me such a wealth of information to think about!
